The 10th season of the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) was a spectacle of athletic prowess, strategic brilliance, and record-breaking feats. Kabaddi fans witnessed not only nail-biting matches but also a rewriting of the league's history books. Here's a closer look at some of the most remarkable records that were shattered in PKL Season 10:

Raid Point Milestones:

  • Pardeep Narwal: The Undisputed Raid Point King: The legendary "Dubki King" Pardeep Narwal cemented his position as the league's all-time leading raid point scorer. He began the season with a staggering 1568 points and surpassed the 1600-point mark in Match 19, becoming the first player to achieve this incredible feat. By the season's end, he had amassed a staggering 1690 raid points, leaving the competition far behind.
  • Naveen Kumar: The Fastest to 1000 Raid Points: Nicknamed the "Naveen Express," Dabang Delhi K.C.'s star raider Naveen Kumar etched his name in history during Match 40 against the Bengal Warriors. He became the fastest player to reach the coveted 1000 raid point mark, achieving this milestone in just 90 matches, highlighting his consistent and explosive raiding style.
  • Parteek Dahiya: Raid Points Without Reply: Gujarat Giants' Parteek Dahiya emerged as a breakout star in Season 10. He showcased exceptional form throughout, contributing a significant 130 raid points. In Match 49 against the Bengal Warriors, Dahiya dominated the game, preventing them from scoring a single tackle point. He finished the match with an impressive 22 raid points, setting the record for the most raid points in a match without a single unsuccessful raid.

Defense Records:

  • Mohammadreza Chiyaneh: Fastest to 250 Tackle Points: The Iranian powerhouse, Mohammadreza Chiyaneh, continued his reign as a defensive stalwart. Known for his aggressive left corner defense, Chiyaneh became the fastest player to reach 250 tackle points in just 63 matches during Match 115 against Tamil Thalaivas. His agility and decisive tackling techniques make him a nightmare for opposing raiders.
  • Fazel Atrachali: The First Defender with 450 Tackle Points: The experienced defender Fazel Atrachali, also known as "The Sultan," became a legend in PKL Season 10. During Match 53 against Dabang Delhi K.C., he achieved the remarkable feat of becoming the first defender to reach 450 tackle points. His experience and leadership continue to be invaluable assets for any team he plays for.
  • Surjeet Singh: The First Indian Defender with 400 Tackle Points: Another veteran defender, Surjeet Singh, made history in Match 104 against U Mumba. He became the first Indian defender to reach the milestone of 400 tackle points, showcasing his consistent leadership and strategic tackling skills throughout his eight seasons in the league.
  • Rahul Sethpal: Super Tackles Galore: Haryana Steelers' right corner Rahul Sethpal emerged as a defensive marvel in Season 10. He displayed exceptional agility and decisiveness, consistently executing solo tackles that put raiders in a difficult position. He etched his name in history by recording the most Super Tackles (15) in a single PKL season.

Team Records Shattered:

  • Puneri Paltan: Topping the Points Table: After the PKL Season 10 Player Auction, Puneri Paltan emerged as a force to be reckoned with. With a squad brimming with young talent, they dominated the league stage, securing the top spot on the points table with a mere two defeats throughout the entire season. Their consistent performance culminated in them setting a new record for the most points scored (96) in the league stage of the PKL.
  • Tamil Thalaivas: The Highest Scoring Team in a Match: Individual brilliance wasn't the only story in PKL Season 10. Tamil Thalaivas rewrote the team record books in Match 126 against the Bengal Warriors. Their young raiding duo of Vishal Chahal and Narender wreaked havoc, scoring 19 and 17 raid points respectively. Combined with a strong defensive performance by Amirhossein Bastami, Tamil Thalaivas stunned everyone by scoring a massive 74 points, the highest ever recorded by a team in a single PKL match.

Leadership Milestones:

  • Captains Leading for 100 Matches: PKL Season 10 witnessed a unique moment as three captains, Fazel Atrachali, Sunil Kumar, and Pardeep Narwal, were featured on the league's honour board for leading their respective teams in 100 matches. Fazel Atrachali, despite not yet securing a PKL title as captain, is renowned for his exceptional leadership and support for his players. Sunil Kumar led Jaipur Pink Panthers to victory in Season 9, while Pardeep Narwal captained Patna Pirates to a PKL title in Season 5. 

Pro Kabaddi League Season 10 was a landmark season that not only celebrated established stars but also paved the way for a new generation of talented players.
